COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Autumn Fire
Ale brewed with chestnut and spices
To catch a bit of soft radiance in each special bottle, we wait for fall colors to begin their bright and fleeting glow before brewing this wonderful ale under their autumn fire. Gentle amber malts lead smooth caramel notes, gently lapping against a shore of distant forgotten spice. A beer to contemplate and enjoy!

As expected this was a foam monster. Pouring this thing was challenging to the point of ridicules. Huge rocky head that refused to dissipate. Even when I put the bottle down, with it still ¾ full, odd bubbles were foaming out of the bottle reminiscent of frog eggs and making a mess on my coffee table. The beer itself was beautiful looking-the color reminding me of the river in the U.P. called Smith’s Creek: Amber but almost glowing. This one was a bit bitterer then I thought. It had the usual apple tasting brett but something seemed a little out of wack. Green apple, hops, and oaky. The backend taste of chestnuts actually had a slight unlikable plastic trait to it. I didn’t dig this Jolly Pumpkin as much as I do others. However, its entirely possible I just wasn’t in the mood for it and will try it again.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2007
2006 bottle shared by Blake. Pours to a clear brown amber with ample carbonation supporting a huge meringue-like head. Woody, cinnamon-spicy aroma with tart acid over ginger bread malt. Great flavor on this stuff - tart green apple, tangy nutty wood, and lemon citrus over soft pale malt. The mouthfeel is aided by velvety carbonation - not at all tingly or harsh. This beer is well put-together; I don’t dig on the nutty flavors too much but it’s still tasty.

Cloudy amber with a huge head. Good lacing and rocky foam. Aroma was sour bret, oak, caramel, citrus and spice. Tangy texture and medium body. My favorite JP yet; Sweet citrus and spice, and less sour than many of their other brews.

Bottle. Thanks to mcbackus for sending me this! Gusher! Pours a cloudy orange/amber body with huge head. Aroma is of spices, nutmeg, cloves, yeast, and caramel. Flavor is sweet, spices lay down smoothly on the tongue. Well carbonated, made a small look in comparison to Choufee. Smooth and enjoyable. Finishes in a dry sweet flavor.

Bottle from my parents trip to Minnesota a year ago. Sweet! Pours a dark golden with a huge white head. Nose is pungent with nutmeg, brett, chestnuts, cinnamon. Flavor is more sour and oaky, with notes of chestnut and cinnamon. This is a really wonderful, summer, winter...enjoy anytime type of beer. Thanks again, Ron. You Rock!
